Internal Governance of Associations in the Czech Republic and in the Netherlands
The current Czech law and the Dutch legal regulation, could be said, contain two different approaches with respect of the regulation of the internal governance of associations.
In the Czech Republic, the Act no. 83/1990 Coll., on Association of Citizens leaves the issue of the internal organisation of associations up to their articles, merely specifying that the information about the bodies forms is an essential element of articles of association. It provides that, at the time of establishment, the minimum internal organisational structure of an association needs to be specified with respect of the purpose of a particular association.
